ISE - English Tutors & Teachers
Greetings! I should love to be your teacher so that your English can become confident and colourful at a sole swoop. My name is Tom, an English teacher, having led 3000+ online lessons, 3000+ face-to-face lessons, and 200+ group lessons. I am fully aware that learning languages, especially English, is vastly time-consuming, not to mention the infinite deal of effort that inevitably needs to be put therein. Obviously, since we humans have no USB ports through which we can absorb much information in a blink of an eye, mastering a tongue does not happen from one day to another – it is a longsome and gradual process. Even for the most talented English-learners, bettering their level from elementary to advanced takes AT LEAST a full year – if not longer –, provided that they incessantly remain determined and hard-working in the meantime. Therefore, English courses offering to perfect your English to such heights where the sky is the limit within a ridiculously short amount of time all embark with you on an IMPOSSIBLE mission. You CANNOT learn the splendours of an entire language, which has been evolving for over 1.5 millennia, in just a month or whatever the promised length be. Under my tutorship however, unlike many of the so-called tutors who merely CONVERSE with you and nothing more, I shall actually be TEACHING you a lot. In addition, since the service provided to you constitutes one-on-one contact, each lesson, which is tailored to your individual abilities and knowledge, is focused upon your utmost satisfaction. You will see that as I am charting your progress, your weak points are going to be patched up little by little. Please note that my aim is not at all stalling for more and more of your limited time and money but readying you with care for the obstacles of English that come up in everyday life. I am basically at your disposal for three major reasons: 1) to show you very effective ways as to how to practise – combat – English, 2) to ensure that your English-related plans come true, and 3) to dub you a champion of the English language. In the end, after you have managed to forge the crude burden of English into your own fine armour, you will be able to wield it and wander the world in its splendour on your own – without my guidance. Before you want to entrust me with the above tasks, nevertheless, please hear me out yet. What I guarantee is BY NO MEANS that the content of our sessions will magically pop in your head while you comfortably sit back and listen to me. It is YOUR hard-working attitude that is the key to your success, because – let us admit it – without the old-fashioned blood-sweating, nothing, not even your untapped knowledge shall strengthen up! Now that I have laid the table for you, let us have a glance upon what in particular can be found on the menu, shall we? ____________________________________________________________________________ Private English tutoring sessions Topmost objectives: • Mastering British English pronunciation and intonation • Gaining hastened fluency and bolstered self-confidence • Useful and real-life situational exercises • Differentiating British English from American English • Guaranteed word-hoard enrichment to a vast extent • Patterns and erratic tendencies in English spelling • Painstakingly grasping grammar and tenses of English • Assorted synonyms, their distinct shades of meaning • Never-before-seen module-methods and exercises • Exceedingly detailed and thorough clarifications • At any age and level are tutorees welcome

I am a highly-qualified (DELTA & PGCE) English teaching professional with nearly 20 years' experience in a variety of educational settings. Need a short intensive course? Want to build up your skills and confidence over a longer period? I can help you with the following (and more): Improving your English for academic (university) study Improving your writing skills: content, accuracy and style. Preparing you for English language exams. Working on spoken expression (British English!), pronunciation and intonation. Understanding what you hear - and being understood. Helping you with the skills you need for your work, or to get a job. Improving your knowledge of a specific area of English before you come to the UK. About me: Passionate about language, I enjoy planning and delivering online courses: exploiting authentic material, boosting productive skills and motivating my students to get the most out of their learning - for academic and professional purposes. I'm creative, enthusiastic and effective at meeting students' needs, so please get in touch with any questions before you book. I have done a lot of teaching and training over the years and am happy to share details with you. I spent the last two summers teaching English for Academic Purposes at a UK university and will be doing the same this year - online! As a hard-working freelancer based in the UK, my rates reflect my the amount of time I spend outside of lessons on finding/developing resources and creating the right course for you.
Tell me your goal and I will create a pathway for you to reach it. Tell me what interests you and I will find a way for you to learn English from it. I will help you to be yourself in English and we usually have a lot of fun as we learn about each other's culture. You will speak a lot in lessons but these are not just conversation classes, they are planned, structured lessons designed to move you forward every lesson towards the goal that is specific to you and to increase your confidence and help you to express yourself. Lessons with me are created from what is relevant to you. In the trial lesson I ask you questions to discover what you want and need, and then send you a learning plan. I'm also a professional writer with over 10 years experience writing for different companies so I can help you improve your writing for job applications, CVs, emails, academic essays, written exam papers, and more. Any Cambridge or Trinity ISE students can use the lessons as exam prep, doing exam simulations together so you can get an idea of what the exam will be like. I make detailed notes during each lesson while you speak, and at the end of the lesson we discuss any of your grammar/vocab/pronunciation errors. You will be provided with a document of these errors to keep. At the beginning of your next lesson we review the errors from the previous lesson. I set homework at the end of each lesson (unless you specifically ask me not to) and we discuss it together at the beginning of the next lesson. I also create flashcards for you of any new vocabulary that comes up in the session. I will periodically test you on these, so you always feel like you are progressing. Frequently Asked Questions: • Can you describe a typical lesson? No two lessons for different people are the same. I plan specific relevant lessons for each student so that you can spend your time in the lesson progressing in the areas that are important to you and your life. Some of my students are working on improving the vocabulary specific to their job, others are working with me to improve their confidence when speaking English, and others are studying film scripts so that they can go to the cinema. You can practice listening to different accents, look at the difference between UK and US English, and practice the different levels of formality in written and spoken English. • Do you teach Business English? Yes I do. Aside from Verbling, I work as a Business English Trainer online. But…everyone's business/job is very different so please let me know what your specific needs are. Do you want to improve your interview technique? Do you need to write a CV or application letter? Do you want to improve your presentation skills? Do you want to know the difference between formal and informal writing for emails? Do you want practice understanding English on the telephone? Do you want to improve your vocabulary for a specific industry? I have experience of teaching English in various companies in Italy, where I teach group classes of beginners and elementary students, as well as 1-1 lessons with the directors and CEO. I love learning about your different businesses and helping you progress in your career. Talk to me about your job and I will create a course specifically for you. • What materials do you use in your lessons? I use a variety of speaking prompts, and listening material chosen specifically for each student to give you exposure to different accents, such as TED talks, youtube videos, TV series, and news websites. You progress using authentic material. I love helping my students to enjoy English and if I find something online that makes me think of your needs then I will send it to you via Verbling chat, just like you would with a friend. In my lessons there is often emphasis on pronunciation. As I explain in my introduction video, if you know how to say a difficult word, or if you know how to join certain words together (we like to do this in English, sorry!) then you will be able to recognise this more easily in your listening. • I can speak some English but I don’t feel like I express my personality I use thought-provoking material which helps you to express your personality through English and I help you find ways to show your opinion. I have interesting discussions with my students about a range of topics and I give you the tools to speak English with more expression and emphasis, and to tailor your English for different situations. You get the opportunity to put vocabulary and grammar into spoken practice. You will study real everyday English and I will encourage you to use more interesting and expressive vocabulary so that you can really be yourself in another language. • Tell me more about you as a teacher I am a highly-qualified native English speaker from Wales in the UK with a standard British accent. I have a CELTA (pass A) from International House in Sicily, and have worked for the well-known International House in Bristol in the UK. As well as teaching on Verbling I am a full-time Business English trainer for another company. I love my job and I put a lot of energy into making a lesson that is right for you. There's no better job than helping someone be able to travel or improve their career options, by helping them to improve their English. Before becoming a teacher I worked as a translator, an education consultant for Oxford University Press, a technical writer, an editor, and a short-story judge, so I have always worked with the English language in one way or another and have experience in using it in different industries for different purposes. I love language and the power it has to change people's lives, careers, and relationships. • Do you prepare students for exams? Yes I do. I have all the material and experience to help you prepare for the Cambridge PET/CAE and Trinity ISE I, II, or III exam. I can do speaking exam simulations, and provide exam techniques for the the reading and writing sections. I can also give you reading homework and writing activities to prepare you. • I suffer from anxiety/I am Autistic and do not want to learn English in a regular school. If you have any issues with communication then I can help you learn English in a calm and relaxed way, with very simple and clear instructions, and an awareness of the difficulties that you may have. Maybe you need help with the recognition of non-verbal cues such as facial expressions, how we use pauses and interjections in general conversation, and the subtle difference in tones of voice in English. We can practice this in a safe, relaxed space with different role plays of real life situations. I have over 7 years’ experience of volunteering with the National Autistic Society and am trained as an online communicator for children and adults on the autistic spectrum. Previous experience and training as a project manager for an online counselling charity has meant that I have been given 1-1 students in the past who experienced too much anxiety to work in a class environment. During my lessons if you need to stop before the end of the hour because of anxiety issues then I will refund you for any time that you did not use. Please contact me via a message on Verbling to discuss your individual needs.
A native British English speaker, I have been passionate about language learning since school. I studied Modern Languages at university in the UK, so understand the challenges of language learning from the student's perspective too. I did Cambridge CELTA teacher training at the end of 2016 (after years of informal teaching) and moved to Colombia to start a new chapter of life in January 2017. I taught at Universidad del Rosario, and also taught a wide variety of private classes with Colombian and international adults and children, in person and online. Now back in the UK, I teach learners of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and contexts. I love the variety of students and the breadth of teaching skills that entails. I have top qualifications and extensive experience, in general, business and academic English, as well as in Cambridge, IELTS and TOEFL international exams. Being a good teacher is all about working with the student to find the personalized way that works most effectively for them to grow in confidence and achieve their goals. It’s about connecting language learning with real life, making sense of English in a particular context and recognizing a student’s personal needs, challenges and learning style. I do currently have capacity for working with new students. If the schedule is not showing your preferred time, please do contact me and I will do my very best to find a space that suits you. Let's do this :-)
